Software development stage: stable
A blogging extension for Plone 3.3.x and 4.x.

Yet another blogging tool for Plone. Blogging package provides simple extension for Plone to make blogging easier with as little as possible modifications or extra content. But still use as much as possible from Plone's default UI to let user's get familiar with extra blogging features in a while.


So, let's say that in most cases when you want to start simple personal blog, default Plone installation without any extra add-ons provides almost all you need. For example you can create Folder / Large Plone Folder for blog posts, Smart Folder as site frontpage with criteria to search contents of the blog folder and then you can start blogging by creating News Items in the blog folder.

Yes that's fine but after while you end up with thinking about better blog view template because folder summary view doesn't provide some extra info about listed News Items like number of comments, permalink etc.

And that's why the Blogging package was created and hopefully will save your time in case you don't need complex blogging tool but still want a blog.
